Water Sciences

Straightforward and scientifically sound solutions for approval, permitting, operational, or closure needs.

Understanding Complexity

Our team of hydrologists, hydrogeologists, engineers, technicians, and scientists are experts in modelling complex systems to comprehend how the natural environment impacts the movement and behaviour of water.

Historical Knowledge

Our senior professionals have conducted numerous historically significant site characterizations. Having worked on many major local government, community, industrial, and mining projects, our senior staff are well-versed in the history of these projects and bring this wealth of knowledge to successive phases and subsequent developments.

Licensing and Regulation

For decades, we have worked closely with regulatory bodies to responsibly manage and protect our resources. We use our understanding of the regulatory framework and our well-developed relationships with licensing bodies to help clients receive necessary permits to support timely project delivery.

Stakeholder Engagement

We understand the significance of water for multiple stakeholder groups and appreciate that some projects can be socially sensitive. Using our technical and regulatory knowledge, curiosity, and listening skills, we help clients engage with stakeholder groups, facilitating productive dialogue and ensuring that our solutions are responsive to the community’s needs.

The Clifton
Difference

Vision. We see possibility in a changing world and have the technical know-how to turn possibility into reality. This is why we were selected as the prime consultant for the first phase of the $4B Westside Irrigation Project — a project that will further reinforce the region’s position as a leader in global food security during a period of rapid global change.
